Principal ChaoLin Chang and Assistant Principal Dane Roberts are welcoming students this week for a new school year at Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School.

As an educator during the last 12 years, ChaoLin Chang has been putting his training and experience to work helping children succeed.

Until recently, he never imagined that he’d be able to apply his Chinese language skills or childhood experiences in Taiwan to what he does.

But those skills and experiences will have a direct bearing on his new role as principal of Houston Independent School District’s Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School.

“This is a school where I can utilize my cultural heritage and help more people,” said Chang, 39, who recently moved from Austin to the Bellaire community where the school is.

“I feel very honored they chose me. There are so many qualified people in the Houston area.”
